    Hi! I'm visiting WDW this february. I needed to know if the dinning plan could be booked once me and my family arrive there and if the Magical Exprss system could be booked once in the airport. Greetings from Argentina :)

    Hi, Mariana! I'm glad you asked this question before you arrived for your vacation and were disappointed.  Some Guests try to add the Disney Dining Plan once they arrive and are surprised to learn they cannot. Any Disney Dining Plan can be added up to three days prior to your arrival date.  So, if you want to add a Dining Plan, you must do so three or more days BEFORE your check-in date.


    Even if you don't make arrangements in advance, you will still be able to use Disney's Magical Express Service to your Walt Disney World Resort.  When you arrive at Orlando International, follow the signs toward Disney's Magical Express, and visit the Guest Services Counter there.  All they will need is your name, identification, and your Disney reservation number.  On my last trip, I had not booked the Magical Express because I was supposed to share a rental car with friends.  When my flight was three and half hours delayed, I had to take the Magical Express.  The Cast Members were extremely helpful, and it only took a couple of minutes to get me on my way.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
